Details of swap:

Do you still miss Daria Morgendorffer, and have the same low esteem for everybody else? Do you admire the art (and mouth) of Jane Lane? Does the voice of Trent Lane still make you melt away? Do you know what a "Britney-eep" sounds like? Because it is the sound you make at every Daria quote you come across?
Then this is the swap for you!

Large is 3 points, Medium is 2 points and Small is 1 point.
Here's some guidelines to help you out

By Time
-Big = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Little = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Big = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

Please remember that communication is vital for a good swap, talk to your partner, and chek in the swap thread at least once per week. Please put "Daria swap" on your PMs to the organizers to help us keep track of your communication. If you can't take pictures for the gallery, ask your partner to take them before she sends, we want the gallery to be bursting of Daria crafts  :D

Yay, four people already after half a day! And one more in the making! Wow, you're awesome! I am so happy we are doing this swap!


Daria: If you want to go, just make believe you're me. When you're popular, all unpopular people look alike anyway.

Jane: (puts on Daria's glasses and imitates her) "Hi, I'm Daria. Go to hell." (normal voice) It won't work. My face is too expressive.

Mr. O'Neill: Right here and now, let's pledge to make Daria's dream a reality.

Daria: You mean the one where people walking down the street burst into flames?

Hooray of the Day: According to Marty Day of Blast-O-Rama.com, The State DVD (due out July 14) includes a trailer confirming the release of the long-awaited Daria DVD in 2010.

Day says:

Popped in the first disc, and wouldn’t you know it, the DVD starts with an ad promoting Daria hitting DVD in 2010. I guess they’re following one ‘couldn’t be done’ release with another!

YEAH!!!!!!

"Look at the jello! It's jiggling!" brittney
"Afraid of the competition?"  Daria


LOL I totally remember Daria.  Back in highschool there was this kid that kept calling me Daria.  I didnt look like her, so im guessing it was my personality that was like her.  Hmmmm go figure. ;D

Quinn: Daria, you can't leave me here with those, those... yuppies!
Daria: Yuppies are from the '80s.
Quinn: So what do you call people in funny outfits who talk about peace and love and stuff?
Daria: Trekkies.

Finally finished. Took me forever to limit out favorites, only to go back to "I love everything!"

Good luck to my partner, lol. I like all things Daria, so I'm sure if they like it, I will too!

@frogangel: We have this long crafting period (actually, I just wanted to have the sendout not to interfer with some birthdays I will have to craft for ;D), it wouldn't be a big to shift sign-ups if you need that to join. OK, everyone will yell at me for being partner-deprived ;D but on the other hand, leaving behind a fellow Daria enthusiast can't be the way.

@ntrebbleagain: I guess that's what's going to be in my questionnaire too ;D I know I didn't like every episode when they were aired, I found some a bit slow, the story not so catching me. But now, I love them all. When I rewatch them, the plot don't need to surprise me ;D I can just watch the characters, and I see more details... yes, some episodes are better than others, some characters are more favourite than others. But there's nothing I'd not like at all...

I don't have a VHS player, so there's not really any option for me to purchase the series at the moment... however, I found this on youtube. Check out the playlists of this user
http://www.youtube.com/user/eedwardgrey2
Some of the videos are flipped horizontally, but it's not too bad. Been rewatching the first five episodes while finishing my inchies for the inchie swap ::)

Oh, and the weird b&w pilot :)

savage pixie, do it! It will be just like a bug bite, you know you shouldn't scratch it, but ah, will it be perfect, and whoa, will it make you itch for more swaps... ;D maybe I shouldn't have said that. Shouldn't scare off potential awesome gallery entry. Forget what I said!

Post by: Ruby Copperhead on August 31, 2009 11:26:49 AM
Yes, me too, it's sad there won't be any new episodes. I still love the show as much as I did then, or even more because now I know more episodes ;D I have even taken over one of Jane's phrases in my daily vocabulary: The "mental health day". ;D
Seriously, getting older just adds more facets to watching the show, it just gets better. I still find a lot of myself in Daria (and I wish I had had her courage at that age!), and now I have nerdy kids and an episode like "Boxing Daria" melts me down from both angles, Daria's and Jake & Helen's.

@savage pixie: Hehe, great to see somone's willpower crumble to dust when it comes to Daria ;D You won't regret it. Wait, you're regretting it already? Too late now! ;D

oh yes, i totally caved.
i was debating it, trying to convince myself that i should just be doing one swap at a time, but hey, what the hell?

i looked up my favorite episode, and that was it for me, haha. it turned into "i have to do this swap!"

I just want to say that I would LOVE to be a part of this swap but feedback from my first swap won't be in by then.    :'(   

I can't wait to see what you all create...I will defintely be a lurker of this swap!!!

Eep!
Why didn't I see this before I signed up for another swap 5 minutes ago? Can I do it? Will have to ponder for a day or two. Eep!

To this day, I can't hear the name "Quinn" without hearing it in the voice or Sandi from the Fashion Club.  So so so much to love about this show.

Hehe... "Quinn, maybe you should become president of the Fashion Club." "Oh, noooo..." ;D
Every time they had this kind of argument, I kind of expected that Quinn actually would become president one day, but I guess she was too clever to do that ;D

Oh, sorry about that! Sendout is 25th of October! I'll change that in the first post! It's a bit long for 5 points, but no way am I going to finish in September due to several birthdays I will have to craft for. I hope to send a bit earlier than October 25, but I like to have some extra time.

Sooooo... Last sign-up day! Everyone, join us NOW! (And I mean everyone, you 189,215 craftsters out there! ;D ;D)

Thanks for clearing that up.  Eventhough October is way better for me, I think I have to pass on this.  I know I'll shed tears of jealousy when I see the gallery, but work + the rest of life is too time-consuming right now to pick up a second swap.  Then again, I'm probably too late anyway. Have fun, Daria fans!

Awesome. So happy about this swap, and I already have ideas based on my partner's questionnaire. This has been an excruciatingly painful day at work (and I suspect I'll have to stay for some painful overtime too!) but really great for swap ideas - I suddenly know what I'll be doing for all my swaps ::)

AND thanks to the_bees_knees' post (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=320213.0), I now also know of spoonflower.com! *swoon* I just ordered a swatch and haven't received yet, so I can't testify about whether they're good... but it cheered me up to know it exists :P
That's a bit OT, but I couldn't care less right now >_< *goes back to horrible work*

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!  I Just hit up amazon.ca and snagged used copies of the Daria Daries and the Daria Database for some more inspiration... Obsess much???

Okay back to watching the last 6 eps of the 5th season!!!  ^_^

Wow, I'm jealous! Tell us what you think about them, they're Daria stuff I don't know.

Melladh, glad Daria could help you through your day! The thought of you thinking up swap ideas makes me all excited! It really took a bit of time until I realized this swap is real, I guess ;D ;D Yeah, I can be slow ;D Sorry, first time organizer, but fuzzy and overwhelmed ;D ;D


Title: Re: Daria Swap (Sendout 25 Oct 2009)
Post by: savage pixie on September 09, 2009 05:59:01 AM
i can't wait to get crafting on this!
unfortunately it's just itching at me because i have absolutely no time until next week. oh well, more time to think of good things to make i suppose.

also, i currently have "Is it Fall Yet?" on its way from Netflix. woohoo.

I'm still forming ideas and trying to decide on what kind of crafts I'm going to try! Trip to Hobby Lobby tomorrow and I'm super excited! The closest one to me is 2.5hrs away, so this is a real treat!

Hope all is well!

I have two good ideas so far, one of them (joke item) might be purchased instead of crafted though because you can just buy it better than I can make it ::) I'll keep this on the idea stage and draw up everything until I've finished the other swap that ends about a month before this one ends, though :D

the long crafting period is nice indeed. if not for the fact alone that i wouldn't have been able to participate had it been shorter time.

i've been drafting up a few ideas, especially after chatting some with shdwstrm, and can't wait to get started.

hope everyone is having a great weekend.

I have seen "Is It Fall Yet?" but it's been years.
It was a good one, but not the best Daria I think. Definitely had some good points though.

Currently watching Dye, Dye! My Darling for some inspiration. lots of Tom in this one.


Title: Re: Daria Swap (Sendout 25 Oct 2009)
Post by: Melladh on September 15, 2009 04:53:15 AM
I rewatched Is It College Yet the other day, and kept going "Huh, I haven't seen this movie.. wait i remember this.. Huh, I haven't seen this movie.." (repeat all the way through)
Because it's just not conceivable that I would have watched it but only remember bits of it, so I kept getting convinced I must not have seen it, in spite of knowing certain bits almost by heart :P


Title: Re: Daria Swap (Sendout 25 Oct 2009)
Post by: savage pixie on September 15, 2009 05:55:23 AM
I had the same thing happened to me when watching Is It Fall Yet?
I was positive I hadn't seen it before, but started recognizing quotes and such about 15 minutes in.

I think its just a Daria movie thing. Most episodes you can recall because they are short and have, usually, some sort of plot to assign to the memorable quotes. But the movies just seem like 3 or 4 episodes in one.


Title: Re: Daria Swap (Sendout 25 Oct 2009)
Post by: Melladh on September 15, 2009 06:25:25 AM
True. That is a general problem with animated tv series that produce movies, isn't it, at least I feel sort of the same way about the Family Guy movie and partially the Simpsons movie. No such problem with the South Park movie though ::)

BLAME CANADA!!

>_>
<_<
*back to office work*

PS After watching Lucky Strike twice, I keep seeing Trent and Mr O'Neill sitting on the grass, Mr O'Neill hopefully inputting a lyric suggestion and Trent saying "You know, if you're not going to take this seriously we can just stop right now."

I just ordered the two daria movies on dvd :D Very annoyed that the rest of the series isn't available on dvd though! And I'm very amused by amazon: "well we have to wait until monday with two of your items, but we're gonna go ahead and ship everything else friday already!" ...we'll see which one the postal service decides to give me first ;) It'll be like a race.

The series is apparently going to be officialy on dvd next Year (Probabaly released by seasons.)  I think the holdup is due to the music copyrights of the insert songs during the episodes.

Check out this website for info

shdwstrm, I am so jealous! Daria books!

Good swap news: I started on the first warm-up project today! And its fun!

Daria Database came in the mail today WOOT!!!!

one in the same style as the other book.  There's funny e-mails between Kevin and Brittany, pictures of Jane's  artwork, whats under Jane and Trent's beds.  Other random stuff

The other book had Quinn and Sandi paper dolls, a detailed map of Lawndale, New Fairy Tales (rmeber when Daria was babysitting and she told the kids the whacked out bedtime story..yah it's more of those,)phots of Daria and Quinn as kids. layout of Daria's room, layout of Quinns Room, Mystik Spiral Lyrics, and other fun tidbits.

I can put up a list of whats included in each book, if you want.  Possibly scan some pages, if someone wants something in particular. It's good inspiration and reeks of Daria Sarcasm!!!

Just checking in! I've been watching all the seasons I have on and off for the last week or so, forming ideas and taking notes all along the way.  :D


Title: Re: Daria Swap (Sendout 25 Oct 2009)
Post by: Ruby Copperhead on September 29, 2009 12:40:16 AM
Hehe, me too. And all the time I think, no, you can't check in just to tell how much you liked this and that episode ;D And how much you even like stuff that is just average, but has some great scenes ;D  Just like yesterday, when I watched Aunt Nauseum. I liked it for Aunt Amy, and the scene where Quinn asks Daria if she thinks they'll also grow up and repeat their arguments over and over again, and Daria says, no, we'll use weapons ;D
Now I watched it again, and discovered new things I like about it. Like how they all support each other in the face of threat, that is, Aunt Rita ;D
I am still working on my first item. I made something from memory, checked it against a picture and sigh, I will have to redo half of it. But the other half is fine!
I hope I can speed up the crafting now. Last weekend was really stressful and I had put the send-out date comfortably far from it by purpose  ;) So my main Daria time is just coming up.

shdwstrm, a list of the contents of the Daria books would be great. If you only were to buy one, which would you recommend?

picked up a few things to work on a project yesterday!
i'm crazy and like to have things planned before i start working, and am going back and forth on one project.
prob is, i have a great idea/project for my partner, just trying to figure out how to fit Daria in, haha.

i will be gathering some videos and more inspiration online soon...yay!

I had the exact same problem until it "solved" itself by me unexpectedly being unable to get what I needed for it ::) Really had me pissed for two days - I'm starting to get over it now though :D Funny thing is I now know how to make it into a Daria thing, so I might do it anyway just excluding this detail that made me think of it in the first place ;)


Title: Re: Daria Swap (Sendout 25 Oct 2009)
Post by: savage pixie on October 04, 2009 05:10:55 PM
I've finished one piece.
And I'm working on doing the next. I am doing something a little different than what I had originally planned. It will still be super awesome, but I'm picking up extra hours for work and don't want to make myself mad trying to get it all done, ha.


Title: Re: Daria Swap (Sendout 25 Oct 2009)
Post by: Ruby Copperhead on October 05, 2009 02:59:33 AM
Hehe, Melladh, you will have to wait, I won't tell you - well, maybe I'll take some cruel teaser pics ;D
So far, I got the stuff I needed, but it might not be that easy to get the rest which will be absolutely essential - but ebay won't let me down I'm sure!

I am simultaneoulsy working on two items now, and it will be hard to let go of them.

Something funny happened, which I haven't had in a swap before: Whenever I put the projects aside in order to get something else finished, I suddenly heard the voice of Daria saying: "Are you avoiding me?" (as heard in 'The Misery Chick').

It was a bit unsettling (especially as it was true when I had to redo something and really was avoiding doing that), and it certainly got me going! :) Well, a cartoon character has never spoken to me before, but if it helps me get the package done, I think it's okay. I really do ;D Well, having Daria quotes pop up in my life is certainly not the worst kind of getting crazy. I think I should actually train that. Maybe I need a Daria Quotes Week. Make that a Year ;D

As I read it in the embroidery board: If you can't fix it, feature it. ;D

Hehehe, just because you said that it'll probably start happening to me too... my mind is very easy to program like that! It could also be that I've gotten sick and might start hallucinating ;D (okay, I'm not THAT sick, and I usually don't hallucinate - last time I did that however, I had Dogbert sitting on the sink telling me how to drink water, so at least I'm in the cartoon theme ;D )

My crafting will probably be on hold until I'm well though - yesterday I spent half an hour ripping seams while trying to finish off the halloween swap :P

I'll have a great material-shopping-spree the upcoming weekend though (I don't care if I'm giving the whole nation swine flu, I AM going to the craft fair!) so I'm going to spend some of my sitting-home-braindead-time while I'm on sick leave writing a nice and good crafting plan and shoppping list. (with three P's apparently)

Ahhh, returned from the craft fair with sooo many happy things ;D Got some great stuff for this swap. One got even more silly and slightly gorey than first intended, it'll be PERFECT ;) (And I've even been good and avoided buying a fortune worth of supplies for a craft I've never tried before :o )


Title: Re: Daria Swap (Sendout 25 Oct 2009)
Post by: Ruby Copperhead on October 11, 2009 11:33:13 AM
Ah, I'm so jealous of the craft fair visit, but I would have spent too much money on it anyway... ;D I just visited this garden center yesterday for getting a flower, and found out they had a craft section. Hitting into craft supplies unprepared... of course I found something that I bought "for the swap". :) That means, I will turn it into a swap project. I had thought about making this item, but hadn't decided upon it yet. Well, now it was decided for me. ;D Yeah, poor me, I see you are all sooo supportive, argh, thank you so much... ;D
Two more crafting weeks!

Post by: Ruby Copperhead on October 16, 2009 07:01:04 AM
Hehe, yes, bouncing between crafts is my natural work rhythm too ;D
Recently, I started browsing through Daria fansites, because the videos on youtube get less avaiable... but it's not the same. I think I am addicted to Daria's voice. :D

Post by: savage pixie on October 16, 2009 03:01:47 PM
So I've been sick for a few days now, just wanting to lay on the couch and do nothing.

Finally starting to feel better and realizing that I have to get going on my last project. I have 2 waiting for just the last finishing touches though, so that's a plus.


Title: Re: Daria Swap (Sendout 25 Oct 2009)
Post by: Ruby Copperhead on October 22, 2009 05:05:44 AM
Okay, as I hear that so many of us have life interfering with their crafts at the moment, I'll shift sendout one week forward, to Nov 2. This will hopefully allow everyone to polish their package to their full satisfaction  :) I want to feel a big pang of jealousy for every package in the gallery that isn't mine! ;D
So happy crafting, and everyone who sees trouble ahead with the new send-out, PM me as soon as possible. Sorry about having the old send-out accidently put on a Sunday ;D I was like, just let me have the sendout as far away as possible from Oct 25 ;D But that is solved now, the new send-out is a Monday.

Post by: savage pixie on October 22, 2009 08:50:01 AM
New sendout date is perfect! Teh sickness has really taken away from my crafting time. Now I can spend a little more time adding the finishing touches I wanted to. Woohoo!

Thank you for delaying the send out! I am still finishing up and my birthday is this weekend, so I know about how productive I'll end up being, lol!

Can't wait to see what everyone has come up with. This has been an interesting swap for me so far!

Ah, that's cool! So on Friday, I can open a gallery!
Great to hear about all the Daria crafting!
Not so great news is that a pair of our co-swappers has left the swap, both for some real life interfering with the swapping. *sigh* It's a sick sad world...

Will use the rest of the week to work on all my Daria stuff. Will have a hard time letting it go!

I'm done too but I'll wait until monday before sending, my last item won't be dry enough until tonight, and tomorrow is the boyfriend's b'day so I won't have time. I had ridiculously much fun with my last craft. ::) AND my guild (WoW) all thought I was really weird :D Mind you the craft that's weirding my boyfriend out they'd probably find completely normal >_>

I'm so sorry my partner and I had to drop outta the swap.  I suppose i can tell you what I was going to make...

I was going to craft a Macbook cozy/carrier--one side styled like Daria's Green Coat/Orange shirt, and the other side with Jane's Red Overshirt/Black shirt.  It was gonna be really cool!  Then I was gonna make an ipod holder in tiger stripe--like Jane's failed "Lady and the Tiger" hairstyle.  I was going to make something else but hadn't figured out what it would be, hah.

Can't wait to see the results!
